Pow, Pop, Wham, Bam! Lichtenstein and Bubble Wrap

A New Yorker born in 1923, Roy Lichtenstein is well known for his paintings and prints that look like comics. His comic strip cartoons are easily recognized as well as his pop art paintings of everyday objects. To give them the feel of the funny pages, Lichtenstein used small dots using four colors of printers' inks. Did you know these little dots have a name?...

My words uttered yesterday during an online art lesson: “apparently the building next to me is burning down and I probably need to go...”

Yesterday was the craziest day at MAKE, and it had nothing to do with how cool art is! The building just down from us on Broadway caught fire (in the middle of an online art lesson- thanks guys for being so incredibly understanding!!)

Thankfully, all the tenants were safe and our awesome Paducah fire department was able to put out the blaze quickly, but it reminds all of us to be grateful for ordinary days!

It was all smiles in the studio with preschool art lessons today! We went down under with dot painted crabs (or as creativity at MAKE goes, individual artist interpretations!)

If there is anyone who knows how to celebrate everyday LIFE, it has to be Kijsa Housman. I have known Kijsa for many years and to this day when she walks into the room I feel my energy level shoot up just a bit. Kijsa Housman exudes the positivity that we all so desperately need right about now. But that’s just the color on the outside of this artistic woman. From the inside an explosion of ideas continuously burst forth and splash onto the easels and sketch pads and canvases that form the very nature of MAKE in downtown Paducah. They also spill out onto the street. Kijsa has made unique contributions to the community in oh so many ways, but her diligence in keeping art alive and well in her virtual art studio during the 2020 pandemic was LIFE-saving for so many of us. Kudos to Kijsa, another vibrant woman making daily history in Paducah with every brushstroke. Let’s celebrate Women’s History Month!

MAKE A Colorful Giraffe Painting

Our colorful long-necked inspiration comes from working Hungarian artist, Anna Briggita Kovacs. I was immediately inspired just looking through her colorful work. She recalls that her highschool art teacher used to call her "queen of color" and I agree with that high compliment. Color makes us happy--vibrant hues recall warm sunny days and playful times. Since the weather today is the exact opposite: wet, dreary, cold and icy (see why I am calling for a forecast of bright colors!), I needed this and thought you might too!...

Drawing A Jockey Like Degas

I was able to edit and revisit some of my favorite lessons from last year! If you missed these, you will be able to catch some wonderful art history and art techniques. Also watch for new ones coming each week!

The name Edgar Degas makes me think of twirling ballerinas and beautiful pastel paintings. However, he also loved the horse races, and these works are so fun to use for drawing studies. His beautiful line drawing and composition pulls the viewer into the scene. When Degas drew ballerinas, he used angles and viewpoints to bring the viewer into the picture. He does the same with his horses....
